Any home investment that you make should be smart, yet so many people make the wrong choices, meaning their money just isn’t going as far as it could do within the home. But your home is just one big ongoing investment, and taking the time to make sure that you’re putting the right amount of money into it, and getting the most out of it, should be your top priority. But sometimes it’s just so hard to know what’s going to be a good investment, and what isn’t going to be worth it at all. There’s always so many mixed views about what you should put in your home and what you shouldn’t, and there’s always the matter of what your personal preference is. Some people like a load of technology and think that’s a good investment, some people think renovating and extending is a good investment. Well the truth is, anything that makes your home a better home for you is an investment. It doesn’t have to be something that you’re trying to get money for, and it doesn’t have to be something you’re willing to put a ton of money into. Even the smallest of buys for your home could be a smart investment, and that’s what we’re going to show you today. We’re going to give you some of 2019’s smartest home investments, so we hope you like them!
There are some renovations that are going to be smart, and some that are just going to be silly. But it really does all depend on your home and what you want from it. If you never use the garage for example and only use it for storage, why would you want to give up this great storage space and use it for something else? Unless of course you really do need the room for something else, but most of the time you’ll just be wasting a great space. But on the other hand, you have the investments that are going to be super smart. The ones that are not only going to make your home a better place to live in, but the one that’s going to add a little bit of value to your home. The renovation that we think does this the best, is a kitchen renovation. It’s one of the easiest renovations to do in terms of quality and finish. Some renovations just don’t turn out as you want them to, but we feel with the kitchen, it always makes it better. So, if you have a run down kitchen at the minute, or a kitchen that you know is just a bit out of date, then think about how you might like to renovate it. Think about colour schemes, what brand of appliances you want, whether you want these to be hidden or on show, and where you might get some of your accessories from. For example, if you’re looking for kitchen sinks and taps, you could go to Tap Warehouse. If you’re just looking for inspiration altogether as to what design of kitchen you should have, you could go to social media websites such as Pinterest such as ideas. Sometimes you just need to see a really good kitchen to find out what it is you want on yours.
You’re either a gadget person, or you’re not. But you have to admit that sometimes you will get super excited over things that you’re buying for your home when it comes to technology. Even if it’s getting excited over the new hoover that you need to buy, it’s still something to really be excited about. So, our first top gadget to buy is nice and simple, and that’s the Amazon Echo. People all around the world have gone mad for this little gadget, purely because it’s just so handy to use. It plays music, it talks to you, it tells you pretty much everything you could ever need to know, and it just makes a really smart addition to your home. You can have two in the home that connect together as well, so you could have one upstairs and one downstairs. Considering how handy they actually are to use, they’re not even that expensive either!
The second gadget on our list is going to be something to help you even more, and that’s one of the steam cleaning hoovers. Your carpet might look nice and clean at the minute because you’ve not longed run the hoover around, but that’s only the surface, and that’s only because you’re not building up big piles of dirt. But what you don’t realise, is how much dirt the fibers of your carpet are holding, even though you can’t see it. So, the first time you use this, you will be more than satisfied. All you will see is the water that you load the hoover with slowly turning a nasty colour of brown. Don’t take offence to it, every single carpet will have this secret build up. And without even realising it needed it, your carpet will come out looking brand new and fabulous, and you’ll be so addicted to watching the colour of the water turning brown, and knowing the outcome of it, that you really will spend days making sure every inch of the carpet has been done!
The exterior of your home should mean just as much to you as the inside of your home does, but let’s face it, it probably doesn’t. Your home is easily one of the best things in your life, but for you to ignore the outside is just a shame. It has so much potential to become a smart investment, and we know one way how. Having an outhouse in your garden is going to bring so many benefits to you, because you can use it for literally anything. You could have it to house a hot tub, and spend your summers soaking away in a beautiful wooden outhouse. You could use it for storage, you could use it for a room away from the home… the possibilities really are endless with this one!
